2. A 10-15 minute silent meditation just focusing on cool air into my brain and warm air flowing out of my nostrils. Then change the warm air to cool for 10 mins then at the end back to warm.

I felt I had to post today because today I had a super strong craving, wanting to go get some smokes and smoke the whole packet.
